Parasite, from South Korean director Bong Joon-ho, was a hit with critics when it played at the Cannes Film Festival - quickly becoming one of the favourites for the Palme d'Or. It centres on a poor family of hustlers who find jobs with a wealthy family.

Korean film-maker Bong Joon-ho's Parasite is a gripping satirical parable of class, status and injustice - an invasion of the lifestyle snatchers that was widely compared to the Joseph Losey classic The Servant.

Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu is President of the jury this year, with the panel having been sequestered in a Riviera villa from early this morning - and emerging on the red carpet just a few moments ago.

The Cannes film festival also shone a light on newcomers.

Manchester United reportedly identify David de Gea's replacement
The Sun , as quoted by Metro , is reporting that the Manchester United boss is eager to get deals wrapped up as soon as possible. The extended time is supposed to give the club additional time to extend his contract, however, de Gea is in no mood to comply.

The genre-mixing film had been celebrated as arguably the most critically acclaimed film at Cannes this year.

Diop won the Grand Prix - the equivalent of a silver prize - for Atlantics, a Senegalese drama about young migrants and sexual politics.

Pedro Almodovar could win his first Palme for his self-reflective "Pain and Glory".
